Group Classes

Weekly classes are a terrific way to learn chess as children make friends and enjoy competing against one another. Classes are based on strength, and as a child progresses, they move up classes. The following classes are available:

New to Chess

13:45-14:45

Ready to learn how to play chess? This class is for those that are in Primary Schools and are completely new to the game.

Pawns

15:00-16:00

Know how the pieces move but not much else? This class teaches basic strategy that will improve your child’s game and prepare them for tournaments.

Knights

16:15-17:15

A slightly more advanced class for children that have participated in tournaments and have obtained a chess rating.

Classes take place every Sunday at Stewart’s Melville College. Each class take a minimum of 12 and a maximum of 28 children. Classes are £6 each and payment is made by term. We run between seven and ten classes each term. No refunds will be given once payment is made.
